FALL GETAWAY - PART FOUR

Enjoying the view at Lions Lookout.
The last day of our "Fall Getaway", was Wednesday, October 18th. We headed into the town of Huntsville after breakfast to kill some time, as lunch was included in our package and check-out wasn't until 2pm.

I had found out that all the pastries and breads served at Cedar Grove Lodge were from a local bakery in Huntsville, so we went there first. If you are in the area, I highly recommend a stop at the Windmill Bakery. Delicious homemade goodness, a cherry pie and a loaf of bread came home with us. We also picked up a few mementos at the quaint gift shop next to the bakery.

After these two stops, we made our way to a scenic spot our waiter had told us about. Lions Lookout offers a great view right in the town of Huntsville.

The view from Lions Lookout was spectacular!

After enjoying the view we headed back to the lodge to take another walk around the grounds before lunch.

We came across an old cabin.

The Fall colours were stunning.

There were many Red Squirrels around, and not one was interested in a peanut. 
We saw quite a few Butterflies during our stay.
After an enjoyable walk, we had one more delicious meal in the dining-room. After lunch we checked out and headed home with full bellies and some great memories.
